Farewell Igloo!

In Pittsburgh, the loss to the Canadians in game 7 brings the end of the 2009-2010 hockey season and with it, the end of the Mellon Arena.

Unfortunately the last game at Mellon Arena (the igloo) brought a defeat and the end of the Pens 2010 playoff run.  But the Mellon has been a part of pittsburgh tradition since the early sixties.  It has seen its share of world famous icons besides the obvious pens players past and present:

“When it first opened in 1961, the Mellon Arena was known as the Civic Arena. The Mellon Arena has exemplified every trait of a world class entertainment facility.

Originally built to house the Civic Light Opera, the Mellon Arena is home to a variety of family shows and has hosted such music legends as Frank Sinatra, The Rolling Stones, six sold-out nights of Garth Brooks and The Grateful Dead, The Beatles on September 14, 1964, Elvis Presley on June 25, 1973

The Mellon Arena is famous for its revolutionary architectural design which features the largest retractable, stainless steel dome roof in the world–170,000 total square feet and 2,950 tons of Pittsburgh steel. The roof, which has no interior supports, is divided radially into eight leaves and is supported by a huge cantilever arm that arches 260 feet. The Mellon Arena, which was featured in the 1995 film “Sudden Death” starring Jean Claude Van Damme, boasts a dome that is designed to open or close in just two minutes.

The size of the Mellon Arena floor is 200 feet x 85 feet (17,000 square feet) for hockey, and can be expanded to 250 feet x 120 feet (30,000 square feet) by pushing back the A-level seats.

In the Fall of 1967, the Mellon Arena became the home of the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins. The Pens have since earned three Stanley Cup Championships–1991, 1992 & 2009″

Current Logo

I cannot pick my favorite between the Nineties logo and the current Pens logo.

Well its been a good run at the Mellon Arena.  I have a lot of memories at that place.  It’s where I saw the circus for the first time, green day, and several pens games.  Including a game three when we played the Red Wings in the finals but ultimately lost the series back in 2008.

But on the bright side, next year pittsburgh will see its new arena, Consol Energy Center where the first event is LADY GAGA! – that’s not a bad way to start the next era of penguins hockey.

Here is the sonogram of the new arena:
